Grace Ever Pouring Like A Waterfall In Spring

AMBER CHAMBERS

As the sunlight himself spills
into corn's kernel cells
As the bees' gathered amber
is poured in hive chambers
so is GOD'S GRACE
poured into mind's gridlace

(to Edmund and Julia L)

COCONUT ON HILLSIDE

The coconut palm
on a hill by the
sea..
dropped her coconut
into the sea..
his inner coconut sea
kept from the outer
by the husk
of the seed
.. but his mother
so wanted him
to become a tree..
for her sake
he floated to
the sands
and with root
strands
became a
tree on the
seagirt land


ERASER RAIN

as a downpour
does remove
a child's chalk
from a sidewalk
so does
a rain of grace
sadpast erase and
cruelty's face
by Love replace
as on
the easels
of time it
creates new space

SARO-WIWA

The political prisoner
sits in house arrest
but truth flows out
through the bars.

The hero seems
broken.. fallen
Yet his enkindling soul
enfires others..
even through his scars.

The lilac is
captive in mud
but her fragrance flows
to the shining stars.

The cabin tries to
wall in the light
but through the chinks
it flows to the bears.

Above wintry
graves of past heroes
new spring
grass green grows
in the ruts of dozer wars.



CARVED GIFTS

They passed by her
gifts unnoticed..
the cones she'd carved
through the year..
and dropped at their feet..
but a family of squirrels
picked up a few
.. and from their casual
crunching
new trees grew
Still other cones
encircled her
.. year after year
they grew to be greater
protectors
Some rolled down
the hill to
a stream..


SNOWSIFT

Snow silent swift
as skydown sprinklesifts
and turns cloud gifts
into earthblanket drifts.

FIREBIRD FEATHER

A flaming feather
of the Pluto firebird
fell to earth's floor...
a sign of God's guarding guiding grace..
for He loves us evermore
evermore
evermore

WATER LILIES

Born of will comes
vision in high places
Born of love to low
places comes grace

Such waters of love
gather in the depths
where shrines
of humility
nurture
water lilies

TREES AND CLOUDS

Angelbidden clouds
and winddriven trees
provide to holy ones
shade and breeze.

EL

There is no
eternal hell
but if there were
God who is omnipresent
would be there too..
the EL within hell.

ARROWS FROM THE RAINBOW

Do the arrows of rain
come from the rain-bow?

GRACE RAIN

Grace's raindropp beads
turn thought seeds
into realized deeds

QUENCHED FIREARROWS

As Krishna stops fire arrows
from piercing Arjun's marrow
As forgiving melts the residue
that blocks the healing of the dew
As the sun melts thickest snow
from fields of rose and yarrow
So does God's grace widen and smooth
the dangerous passes narrow

BEEHEADED

The scyther saw with wonder the
milkweed... beecrowned, beeheaded
and put down his scythe
leaving her.... unbeheaded

WEDDING GIFTS FROM THE SUN AND RAIN

Pies of date sugared pecan
Pies of berry
Pies of sweetest fig
Pies of cherry

PLANT PROTECTORS

Though a cruel
knight
had with sword smote
him into a deep
cold moat
he was saved by
the happy chance
of a weaving of
moatquaffing oats


CRIMSON TURNS GREEN

A traffic policewoman stands at
a red light.. waving
everyone through..
like visible grace
in the form of
an invisible guardian
angel.. turning
red to green

DEVIL RAYS PLAY THE ANGELS

Someone, an equal fan of both sides
in the stands was
watching the Devil Rays
play the Angels.. like
... the nonduality of God
who sees all conflict with
detachment..
but occasionally sends
in heaven's angels to help
the better side


(not an endorsement of
the politics of Rupert Murdoch
.. nor a preference for
Tampa or LA)
(May God make all stadium food
nonviolent, all prices nongouging, and turn many away from
spectator sports to the following of their own destinies)

HIDDEN LOVE

Her love for him was of pure spirit.
Times in the past she thought
she'd shut down... her love
was kept for her by angels..
hidden in the recesses of her
heart,


RAINBOW VECTORS

Do rain's arrows
come from the rain-bow?

PERFECT KNOWLEDGE

The tree need not query
on how to make cherries
She needs no tuition
to come to fruition.

FRONDFRAMED FRUIT

Juice for the
frondframed fruit
rises from coconut
palm's hidden roots
as water like grace
turns into leaf lace

GREAT LAKES GRACE

It's snowing in
the Great Lakes
Tangible grace
falling in flakes
as angels do alight
to help all win the fight

LAURIC ACID

Sometimes God's most
precious gifts are
the most difficult to
open, such as
His coconut.. containing
meditation juice.
Sometimes His presents
bring His immediate Presence
such as the light of the sun
reminding that He shines inside.

GODDROPS

Flowering grass spire, dew-wnnded,
green exclamation point!
Inverted birthday candle!
No more cake!
Quill from no bird, starpointed
with a dropp of ink
--


Lauric acid is an ingredient in coconut milk and is conducive to meditation. Leonardo Da Vinci ate no honey stolen from bees. A British rabbi wrote an article in The Jewish Vegetarian about the smashing of bees when the racks are pulled in and out, the imprisonment of bees as queen's wings are clipped, and the death of whole hives in the winter by greedy human captors not wanting to feed the bees in cold months.
